I saw this last night and was surprised how much I liked it.
Except for all the silly filler profanity, that is. And the absurd overuse of early 90s idioms. So distracting. Thank God Tarantino eventually learned to write better dialogue than this.
What struck me most was actually the deleted scenes. I listened to them with Tony Scott's commentary on. Literally he will begin his commentary of a deleted scene talking about why it was cut and why it made sense to cut it, then he'll watch it for 10 seconds, then he'll completely change his mind and say "actually I really wish I had left this in, it's sort of crucial for the characters and adds so much etc. etc." His excuse was that the movie was getting too long. I'm sorry... you cut 1-2 minutes of what you consider crucial, brilliant, illuminating character footage (and I agree), but you couldn't find anything else to trim? Easy, cut the roller coaster scene... that's at least 3 minutes right there. And why is this DVD labeled "director's cut"? Wasn't this your opportunity? No, instead of doing that, let's add extras in which we have regretful epiphanies about essential moments that we hacked off the movie.
